  • Demolition of the Pullman Works, Brighton

    £4.00

    The Pullman Works at Brighton sat derelict for many years before the decision was finally made to demolish it. Years of vandalism and neglect had left it in a bad way.

    Occupying a curious triangular plot of land at the junction of the main London to Brighton line and the westbound coast line, it was hoped by some that this building would one day be used as a railway museum. Being accessed almost exclusively by rail, this was sadly never likely to happen.
